Four Eyes

So, I am in desperate need of new glasses. Seriously. I am wearing ancient frames - hand-me-downs that I broke recently. They now sit totally wonky on my face. On most days, I wear contacts, so finding replacement frames has been really low on the priority scale.

Lately I have been seeing a lot of cool frames around the blog-o-sphere. Maybe it is because it is back to school time and everyone is feeling very collegiate? Whatever the reason, I have been seeing some great frames out there that are super cool & super inexpensive - two of my most favorite things. One problem with all of this is that I can't just pop into an online store to try on a pair of frames...or can I?

I just came across this cool site by Warby Parker. This site has an amazing feature where you can upload a photo and virtually "try on" any of their frames. Below is my current pick. Think I should "try on" anything else?

My frames of choice at the moment - Huxley in the Crystal Tortoise.
I am sort of digging their hipster vibe.


Me. In the frames. Looking surly. It felt weird to smile for a web cam.

S!!! I love them! You look beautiful and classic. Yes, a bit of the hipster vibe in a good way. Not over the top (like the trucker hats we saw this weekend).

Love!

Seconding the love, plus they have a cool name. My puppy named Huxley just passed away two weeks ago. I would personally take it as a tribute to him if you got these. See, now you have to get them. Okay, maybe not really.
